A300 to D80?
Sep 22, 2009

I'm an Alpha user but i'm thinking of switching systems. My primary reason of switching would be better ISO performance, handling and build quality. I also like the 2 dial system on the D80/90
I thought of getting the 35mm F1.8 as a sole lens until i can afford a 18-200VR.

I got quite a good deal on a used D80 and I'm am on a very limited budget so the D90 is ruled out and i don't wanna get the entry level bodies because of the lack of af motor and direct controls.

I curently have a Tamron 17-50 F2.8, Tamron 70-300 and the kit lens, thats all. Note the lack of 1st-party lens. :X

Is the D80 a big improvement over the A300?
Is the D90 that much better than the D80?

Thanks..
